    Pros

    ABB is a global company that promotes cross training and likes to promote from within. There are plenty of opportunities and the salary is competitive. Employees are vary valued and management cares about if you are happy or not.

    Cons

    Process improvement needed at least where I work. Management wants the team to drive improvement and change but I feel a lack of follow through to continue. HR and IT are overseas

    Advice to Management

    Continue caring.
